Shooting Drills with J.R. Smith
Nuggets wingman and 7-year NBA veteran walks you through his shooting workout
A jumper. A ratchet. A "J." A Stroke.
Call it how you wish, good shooters always find a home. That's why Nuggets 6-6 swingman J.R. Smith from Freehold, NJ, is collecting a check in China while the NBA lockout endures.
The former McDonald's All-American who bypassed college for the "A," can get buckets. Smith's a consistent double-digit scorer, and shot a ridiculous 42.9% clip from downtown in the playoffs last season.
He's got limitless range and solid mechanics. Now, Smith is ready to walk you through his dynamic shooting workout, covering everything from the correct shooting form to being able to hit shots off of screens.
